โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹Every year, in the lead-up to the state exams, we are often asked for predictions on various subjects for the Leaving Cert exams. Because the exams are a bit different this year with the various adjustments made due to the pandemic, it's hard to make concrete "predictions", but we've still put together our Topic Analysis Tables for you to try & plan your study as best as you can, even without specific predictions!

Our Topic Analysis Tables identify recurring topics within subject exams over the last ten years. We do not encourage taking the Topic Analysis Tables for gospel; any topic that is on the syllabus can appear on the state exam. Our predictions are only educated guesses as to what might appear on the exam. 

What are Studyclix Topic Analysis Tables?

Studyclix Topic Analysis Tables analyse all the exam questions for Leaving Cert exams from the last 10 years. This allows you to identify topics that are frequently asked every year.

Looking at the questions asked over the last 10 years, we created one topic table per subject, highlighting every year a topic within that subject was asked.  We have given each question a score to allow us to calculate a frequency for that topic, and you can check out the key at the bottom of each table to understand the scores and question length.

How do Studyclix Topic Analysis Tables Work?

Each subject is divided into topics that correspond to the topics on our Questions by Topic page. We then reviewed each topic and noted when a short question or a long question was asked for that year. A result of how often a question was asked from the last 10 years is also given in the "Frequency" column on the Topic Table. 

The Studyclix Topic Analysis Tables also allow you to draw your own conclusions on certain areas of each subject. 

Here's a list of the topic analysis tables that you can download and print out:


Agricultural Science


Biology Experiments



Chemistry Experiments


Home Economics



Remember our predictions are only educated guesses as to what might appear on the exam, anything that is on the syllabus can appear on the state exams!

Best of luck with the study ๐Ÿ˜Š
